Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? Weâ€™re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what youâ€™re choosing for tonight!
An exciting new Epix Original debuts tonight that is yet another DC Universe, Batman-related, live-action series that will not feature Batman directly. Pennyworth instead will follow the adventures of the only non-costumed detective to be allowed in the Batcave: the butler Alfred Pennyworth. The show takes place after World War II, with Alfred fresh out of the British Special Forces. He is very much a bad-ass with hand-to-hand skills that rival old Batâ€™s. He is also young and in love and trying to establish himself as a savvy security consultant. Fortunately young bachelor Thomas Wayne has a price on his head and needs security, so I think they can work something out. I got to see the screener for the debut â€“ and without spoilers, it is flat-out smashing. Ka-pow!
The other Bat-related shows are the recently completed Gotham and the soon-to-debut Batwoman. Batwoman will be a part of both the Arrowverse in general and the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover coming next winter. Oh, I just remembered an honorable mention for Bat-related show that tangentially featured Bruce Wayne: Powerless. What I am getting at here is that it feels like they are getting ready to try a Batman show sometime this century. Iâ€™m hoping for it anyway. Till then, we have Pennyworth.
On tonightâ€™s 70-minute premiere, â€œPilot,â€ just out of the English air service, Alfred Pennyworth finds himself at loose ends and endeavors to start a security company.
Iâ€™ll also be watching Perpetual Grace, LTD, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, & Ripleyâ€™s Believe It or Not.
